From the Athletics Director

Dear St. Francis Families,
 
Thank you all for supporting Shark athletics. Fall sports have been doing well as our student athletes are competing on the field/court and cross country track and representing our school in a way that would make St. John Bosco proud.

Volleyball
Congratulations to your St. Francis volleyball team for their win over SLV. The set scores were 25-19, 25-21 and 25-21 for the sweep. Your Sharks are now 5-10 overall in the season and are 4-2 in the last six matches. 
 
The Sharks hosted our St. John Bosco Tournament on September 15th and placed 2nd to Sobrato. That day the Sharks beat Stevenson, North Monterey County and Trinity Christian.
 
Football/Cheer
Our football team is on a roll with a 3-1 record and fresh off of a 28-10 win over Harker. The Sharks begin PCAL play Friday night at King City. In other non league contests the Sharks beat Sobrato 51-16, beat Pajaro Valley 41-0 and lost a heartbreaker to Watsonville 16-14. Thank you to the Cheer team for your great support. This year the cheer team is a competitive team and will be taking part in competitions. Good luck to our Cheer team as they begin competitions.
